Camera:

Outfitted with only a front-facing camera, which is stated as being an HD one, it’s mainly reserved for video-chatting. Needless to say, it’s sufficient enough for the task, but there’s no dedicated app for snapping self-portraits of yourself. In the end, it’s a nice addition to find with the Amazon Kindle Fire – especially when the original model omitted it.


Multimedia:

Looking over the music player on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD, which also happens to sync purchased songs from Amazon, there’s nothing particularly out of the ordinary with its presentation. Commanding a decent amount of presence, its stereo speakers pump out some serious tones that are blistering with a lot of substance – and that’s without any distortion as well!

Rather than having to download a third party app to watch videos that are stored locally, the Kindle Fire HD now offers a native app, which happens to support a wide array of codecs. In fact, it’s able to play our test video that’s encoded in MPEG-4 1920 x 1080 resolution. Moving swiftly with plenty of clarity, its bright output and vibrant color production seemingly complements the experience.

Showing its flexibility in the multimedia department, there’s a microHDMI port that provides the comforts of having a mirrored experience on a high-definition television. Therefore, if you want to watch some of the available content from the Amazon Prime Instant Video service on your TV, you’ll be able to do just that.
